Upon Futher Review: What stood out from the all-22 in Browns vs. Bengals?

We are now three days removed from the beatdown 24-3 win over the Cincinnati Bengals by the Cleveland Browns. Since then, the all-22 has been released so we can get a better picture of things like quarterback timing, defensive coverages, interior line play, and other things that are not obvious from the broadcast angle.

We will break down what stood out from the all-22 here.

The defensive line has been talked about ad nauseam, so we will refrain from breaking down the obvious: the likes of Myles Garrett, Za’Darius Smith, and Ogbo Okoronkwo were really good, and the Browns found ways to get them all on the field 60 percent of the time.

Here are five things that stood out when taking a second look at the game from the all-22 angle. I also discussed this with The OBR’s Jake Burns in my latest episode of Nothing Rhymes with Orange. The podcast can be found on Apple or Spotify.

What to make of Jedrick Wills' performance

For better or for worse, Jedrick Wills was Jedrick Wills in this game. And Jedrick Wills is not as bad as people seem to think he is.

Again, he’s comparable to and in the same tier as Tytus Howard of the Houston Texans, Jawaan Taylor of the Kansas City Chiefs, D.J. Humphries of the Arizona Cardinals, and Cam Robinson of the Jacksonville Jaguars. And those players all make $17 million or more per year.

There are issues in pass protection that need to be cleaned up. Big time. Jake and I talk about it in the podcast. However, it looks like he’s setting well wide of his vertical plane and giving up the inside track far too often. In this one, Trey Hendrickson had no issues forcing Wills to overset and take back the inside track.

He needs to set more vertically and stay closer to the outside hip of Joel Bitonio. It is easier to continue to adjust wide rather than change directions and try to mirror back inside. Besides, with a quarterback like Watson, Wills needs to be okay with getting beat along the outside shoulder.

If Wills gets beat along the outside shoulder, he can still run the edge rusher along the loop and still give his quarterback a bubble to step into and through. If he gets beat inside, there is no alley for Watson to escape. These are drive killers.

This must be communicated between Wills and Watson how the quarterback wants him to set on three-step, five-step, different nuances per concept, and more. The foot speed is there, the traits are there. But Wills has still not put it all together.

Two reasons for hope, however: Wills played a much cleaner game in pass protection the second half, and had a strong game as a run blocker.

As far as run blocking goes, Wills was more than fine. He got to his spot, climbed to the second level with ease, and showed his athletic ability to get wide as the Browns fell back into their outside zone comfort zone as the elements took over.

Here are just a few clips of Wills doing his job and sealing off lanes and cutback avenues for running back Nick Chubb.

Dawand Jones looks ready to go

Ready or not, the Dawand Jones era has arrived after veteran Jack Conklin hits Injured Reserve with a season-ending injury. However, Jones was up for the task in this one against the Bengals. On 20 pass-blocking reps in this one, Jones was not credited with a single pressure. No hurries, no quarterback hits, no sacks, no nothing.

He had Sam Hubbard on lock all game long.

His set is clean, he plays with excellent spacing as he hugs the outside hip of right guard Wyatt Teller, and has shown the ability to reset his hands and win back inside position. While his comfort getting wide on outside zone looks is evident, the Browns should lean back into more inside zone and interior runs in a game where they aren’t just trying to manage the elements and a sizeable lead.

Jones will be baptized by fire this week though, as former Defensive Player of the Year T.J. Watt is up next for him on national television. If he steps up on Monday Night Football, the legend of Dawand Jones will gain traction and a massive fanbase quite quickly.
